WASHINGTON (AP) -- After all those hits along the long and winding road to fame, you'd think nothing would fluster Paul McCartney. Think again.

Sir Paul has confessed he's ''slightly nervous'' about Wednesday night's concert at the White House. That's where President Barack Obama will present McCartney with the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

There's an all-star lineup for the tribute concert, including the Jonas Brothers, Faith Hill, Stevie Wonder and Jerry Seinfeld. Also performing: Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello, White Stripes singer and guitarist Jack White and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. McCartney himself will be performing, too.

Those not on the guest list can catch the concert July 28th, when it's televised on PBS.

just saw an article where he's quoted as saying he doesn't remember the words to his songs anymore. Only the ones he rehearses for tours and easy ones like Blackbird, ect.
